New Series Announced! Batwoman is Back! America Gets Her First!
Guys, gals, and all genders in between! DC Comics and Marvel are bringing back some of their best LGBTQ ladies!
First up, Kate Kane AKA Batwoman gets a new solo series in February. Written by Marguerite Bennett with art by Steve Epting, there will be a Rebirth one-shot followed by the the first issue in March.
Bennett is joining James Tynion IV on “Batwoman Begins,” a two-issue story arc in Detective Comics. That follows the current “Night of the Monster Men” storyline. Batwoman and Batman discover that the venom from the defeated monsters’ corpses is being sold as a bioweapon. After Batwoman comes face to face with the villain responsible, Batman gives Batwoman a mission that takes her around the world, creating the backdrop for her new solo series.
Next up, America Chavez isn’t a Young Avenger anymore as she gets her first solo title! We didn’t get much from the New York Comic Con announcement other than America #1 cover art by Jamie McKelvie. McKelvie with Kieron Gillen aided America’s popularity in their run of Young Avengers.
To clarify, there is no word for the writer of this book yet. There is also no release date at this time.
